I have my printer set up and working with cups, but I can't print web pages from Firefox.

You might try installing cupsys-bsd.
Grieve not for happy Claudius, he is dead;
And empty is his skull.
Pity no longer, arm-in-arm with Dread,
Walks that polished hall.

Joy, too, is fled.
But no man can have all.

If you're using Gnome: Install gtklp. In your print dialog box from Firefox:
File --> Print, then choose Properties, remove the lp line that's in there and replace it with this: /usr/bin/gtklp

You're in business.

No Charge.
